Our Family

Where are we????? The snow just continued to fall all night and we woke up to a winter wonderland!
School was cancelled on Friday. Halie missed school on Monday because we had some family in town, Wednesday she missed because her and Austin had pink eye, or what I thought was pink eye. It turned out to be a very long lasting virus of some sort. And then Friday, no school. The kids are sick, we couldn't get out and do anything. Mommy was getting a little stir crazy in the house, so were the kids! Thank goodness Halie was well enough to go play in the freezing snow! How can you not let a kid go out and play in that in Texas?

She had a blast playing with the neighborhood kids. Her poor little hands and feet were frozen when she made it back inside after about an hour.

Halie made a little bird feeder a few months ago with a pine cone that we lather with peanut butter and then roll in bird feed. We have refilled it a couple times, but I have never seen a bird eat from it. A cardinal couple has now claimed the feeder. They are beautiful with the white background. They have hung around for a couple days eating from the feeder. Halie thought that was pretty cool!

Ahh, the new coffee maker! You really don't appreciate your coffee maker until you don't have one for a week. After 7 1/2 years of faithful service, our old machine died. The new one arrived this week and we love it! It actually grinds the beans for you right before it makes the coffee!

Austin seems to be feeling better today, he slept all night last night, woke up at 8am. This has not happened in about a week. We made it to church and got to join the land of the living again! Hopefully this week everyone will be healthy.
